This section is full of original toddler Christmas crafts. I have thought up and tried out everything here with my 3-year-old son, and other younger toddlers.

None of these creations require any real artistic skills.
What's more, virtually all cost less than the price of going out for coffee.
Does that mean I've sacrificed presentation?
Not at all.

When you subscribe to ToddlerActive Tips
Toddlers can be free spirits (translation: Very Messy) when it comes to anything art-related.
Don't let your desire for well-presented gifts and decorations make you overly fussy about having all the right bits stuck in all the right places.
There's plenty of time for that when they grow up!
Just think: would you rather have your toddler produce something pristine that you could buy in a shop, or would you prefer to create something real that any of your relatives can cherish (well, for a while anyway)?
Everything in this section is doable and, let's face it, pretty attractive. The best thing is that is gives you the chance to have some messy fun with your child and save some money on Christmas gifts for Aunty Ida!
